Petrosoft LLC, a global provider of end-to-end retail technology solutions, announces it has received SOC 2 certification. SOC 2 is increasingly becoming the compliance requirement that technology companies must meet today. As companies leverage the cloud to store customer data, SOC 2 compliance is becoming a necessity for a wide variety of organizations, especially for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies. Achieving SOC 2 compliance means that Petrosoft has established processes and practices with required levels of oversight across the organization — specifically, monitoring unusual system activity, authorized and unauthorized system configuration changes, and user access levels.
Internet of Things becomes more and more of a necessity for retailers, as it helps them embed the physical devices with electronics, software, and sensors, enabling a seamless data flow.
Digital Transformation is the trend to follow nowadays. If it’s done smart, it is a sure path to success and customer enablement that allows companies to understand data, compare results, and make accurate predictions.

It’s hard to remember that over 20 years ago cell phones were mainly used for emergency purposes and looked like walkie-talkies; think the Nokia 9000 which was one of the first mobile “great communication enablers.” In 1996, Hotmail’s free email service was introduced, growing from zero to 30 million active users in 2.5 years, which of course was used to exchange “important” and countless cat pictures. In 1999, one of the first free SaaS collaboration tools was launched, MSN Messenger, which grew to 300 million global users by 2011 while Hotmail grew to 350 million global users by that same year. As a cloud c-store technology provider who started to develop its first SaaS solutions during the late 1990s, Petrosoft is well aware of the limitations of mobile and SaaS during this period as well as the advancements in technology over the next decade.

Restaurants and convenience stores find success by staying competitive and controlling margins. Pressure on margins can come from many sources such as wage increases, employee turnover, gas price fluctuations, declining tobacco sales, and card fees. The blurring of retail formats is also changing the competitive landscape, creating new competition and opportunities.
Strong sales and profits are the result of having the right product mix and level of inventory. Achieving this ideal mix requires having current and accurate inventory information. Manual processes not only take time, causing delays in producing current and accurate inventory information, but also increase the likelihood of errors. These delays and errors are likely to cause lost revenue due to inventory overstocks, understocks and out-of-stocks. Automating inventory processes not only speeds the time to produce accurate inventory information but, if forecasting is automated, it can also help to predict the inventory needed before orders are placed. Inventory forecasting can also be used to manage a chain’s existing inventory, discovering and moving overstocked inventory to under or out-of-stock locations. This decreases the risk of spoilage, returns and promotions.
Keeping track of inventory can help retailers not only meet customer demand by keeping shelves stocked with high-selling items, it can also help them keep a faithful watch on high theft items. Inventory errors and shrinkage can result in lost sales and profits. In addition to optimizing inventory placement and movement, it is crucial to utilize cycle counts (physical inventory counts) to avoid shrinkage and inventory errors. Creating cycle count tickets through Petrosoft’s cloud-based back-office system, C-Store Office simplifies the process of spotting store errors and can help eliminate future errors from occurring.
To produce the greatest return, the inventory carried by a c-store should meet its customers’ tastes, needs and expectations.
As Hershey’s data illustrates, to carry the right product mix, c-store managers should consider regional, local and hyperlocal trends and demographics.
Inventory is a core asset that can make or break a convenience (c)-store operation. Managing c-store inventory, which may include thousands of UPCs, requires tracking key data and metrics as well as having the right operational procedures, infrastructure and technology to optimize the inventory. Poor performing inventory can be due to losing inventory through shrinkage, discarding inventory due to spoilage and being overstocked or out-of-stock on inventory items. This can lead to lower sales, profits and margins. A first step in gaining control over a c-store’s bottom line is getting an accurate view of an operations item-level inventory.
Collecting and transferring ATG and POS data through a public (open) internet connection makes fuel marketers and c-store owners vulnerable to data breaches and attacks, enabling hackers to control and turn off gas station pumps. With DirectConnect and C-Store Office, fuel marketers and c-store owners can transfer encrypted data within their own private and secure environment, all at an affordable price.
PITTSBURGH, PA–(Marketwired – December 02, 2014) – Petrosoft launches DC-301, the next generation of DirectConnect. The DC-301 is the reliable, fast and secure way for retailers to connect their POS systems to their back office systems without the need for a computer. Computers are multi-use as well as multi-purpose machines and, in a retail environment, are likely to be used by many employees during the day which can increase the vulnerability and threats to your data and systems. The DC-301 has no active users and its single purpose is to provide a secure connection so your encrypted data can be transferred between your font-end and back-end retail systems. This can reduce overall data transfer time by as much as 37%, transferring all the data from a shift report in under 40 seconds.
PITTSBURGH, PA–(Marketwired – November 04, 2014) – Petrosoft introduces SmartPOS retail video journaling, a novel solution that enables retail operators to quickly review the video footage of important point of sale transactions, saving them time and reducing overall operational risk. The SmartPOS video journaling feature adds a layer of intelligence to video surveillance footage, providing a smart way to navigate hours of video footage. This layer of intelligence is created by connecting SmartPOS data, the electronic journal, to the video footage from up to four cameras. This feature assists the retailer in navigating through the hours of video footage from those four cameras which would usually be a cumbersome and, at times, an impossible task. The retailer can use this feature to navigate to specific transactions by employee, category or bookmark. With video journaling, using video footage to review restricted item purchases becomes a manageable task that can be accomplished within minutes versus hours.
